Are there any more lyrics for "Five pounds of possum?"
here is what I have.

Verse 1:
My children are hungry, my dog ain't gota bone.
Ain't got no job, and I'm just travelin on.
Its an hour after sundown, what to my delight,
why there's five pound of possum in my headlights tonite!

Chorus:
Oh theres five pound of possum in my headlites tonite.
If I could run him over, everything would be all right.
Oh we'll make some possum gravy, oh whata wonderful sight.
cause ther's five pound of possum in my headlights tonite.

Verse 2:
Ain't gonna be no baked chicken or no cooked ham.
just a little closer and I'll have him in my hand.
I think I'll turn my headlites up on bright.
cause there's five pound of possum in my headlite tonite.

Thanks. Apparently there are just the two verses and the chorus. How about a third and fourth verse?

Possum gravy for breakfest, I loves it a bunch.
Possum lips, possum snout on ho cakes for lunch.
Saltines with sliced tail inspires me just right.
Five pound of possum in my head lights tonite.

Chorus;

Dogs sucked the bones dry, plate licked plumb clean.
mama's gettin' hungry, which makes her kind of mean.
Let's partake of God's bounty, I saw the light.
Pray for five pound of possum in my headlite tonite.

Oh Lord I think I missed him so I slam on my brake lights
I think I'll turn this truck around and steer more to the right
there I think I see him his red eyes a fright
there's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight.

Entire song as I learned it is three verses.

My children are hungry and my dog needs a bone.
I got laid off and I'm just drivin' home.
When up in the road ahead much to my delight
There's five pounds of possum in my head lights tonight.

CHORUS: There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight.
If I could run him over everything would be alright.
We'll have some possum gravy. Oh, what a beautiful sight!
There's five pound of possum in my headlights tonight.

Won't have to clean no chicken. won't have to open no cans.
Just a little bit closer and I'll have him in my hands.
I think it's time to go now from dim to bright.
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight. CHORUS

Oh Lord, I think I missed him so I slam on my brake lights.
I think I'll turn this truck around and steer more to the right.
There I think I see him, his red eyes a fright.
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight. CHORUS

This brings up a mildly sore point with me: There seems to be no market or restaurant that will enable me to dine on either of two staples of American folksong: possum (with sweet potatoes) or groundhog (or, since I am posting from New England, woodchuck). (The two ads that Google has attached to this thread are not helpful.) Why is that?
